That really depends.. maybe it's not so great on BMWs, but in the honda world, ecu tuning can make significant improvements in power. Most of that is because of good rom editing software (like Hondata), that can be purchased and tuned by anyone, instead of getting it from a shop who sends the ecu out to some obscure place, and waits for it to come back reprogrammed.

sadly, nothing like this exists for bmw's yet.
